hey guys,

I have a 2002 escape and was wondering if there is a way to program to have my doors lock when i go into drive or after i start driving.
i have seen this in some other fords i have owned and with small kids this would be a great feature

thanks for the help

I don't think the computer can be programmed to do this in the 2001-2004 Escapes, but you can wire up a module to do this. JP has schematics somewhere that he might post if you give him enough Blizzards, or you can see if he'll make a kit and sell it to you.

Would this work on a 2.0 manual gearbox 2003 Maverick???? :shrug:
With a manual transmission, the only thing I could do is lock the doors when the parking brake is released, and (optionally) unlock them when the parking brake is engaged.

I'll need more than a few Blizzards for that one.

I'll try to resurrect this one. It's possible to do this, but not from the factory. Ford didn't add automatic locks to the Escape until sometime in 2006.

You already have this feature in a 2008 Escape. It may be disabled.

Here are the instructions to enable (or disable) the autolock/unlock feature, from page 82 in your 2008 owner's manual:

Power door unlock/lock procedure
You must complete Steps 1-5 within 30 seconds or the procedure will have to be repeated. If the procedure needs to be repeated, you must wait 30 seconds.
Note: All doors must be closed and remain closed throughout the configuration process.
1. The ignition must be off to begin sequence.
2. Turn the ignition to the 3 (ON) position.
3. Press the power door unlock control three times.
4. Turn the ignition from the 3 (ON) to the 1 (OFF/LOCK) position.
5. Press the power door unlock control three times.
6. Turn the ignition back to the 3 (ON) position. The horn will chirp.
7. Press the unlock control, then press the lock control. The horn will chirp once if autolock was deactivated or twice (one short and one long chirp) if autolock was activated.
8. Turn the ignition to the 1 (OFF/LOCK) position. The horn will chirp once to confirm the procedure is complete.

found this site for lancers... has a writeup that looks like it might work on the escapes... can anyone verify/deny?

From what I can see, it looks like it would work. The instructions are here: http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/attachmen ... 00k_up.pdf

I'll have to dig up the wiring diagrams later. It looks like you could wire one of the trigger inputs to the park position sensor, which would cause the doors to lock when you shift out of PARK and unlock when you shift back into it. But the Escape uses a one-wire lock/unlock input, which will require an additional resistor.
